ignored history. the truth is that 65 years ago today, the united nations voted to petition the british mandate into two states -- a jewish state and an arab state. two states for two people. israel accepted this plan. the palestinians and the arabs rejected this. they want to throw the jews into the sea. from 1948 and 1967, the west bank was used by jordan and gaza was ruled by egypt. they created a palestinian state. instead, they sought israel's destruction and were joined by newly formed terrorist organizations. the truth is that camp david in 2000 and again in 2008, israel made far reaches for peace. they were met with rejection and even terrorism. in 2005, israel dismantled and entire communities and uprooted thousands of people from their homes. rather then use this opportunity to have a peaceful future, the palestinians and gaza -- thousands of rockets were fired into cities. areas have been turned into a launching pad for rockets into israel he cities and a haven for global terror and an ammunition dump for iranian weapons. they refuse to accept responsibility and make the toug

at the united nations to upgrade the palestinian authority status to nonmember observer state, full statehood still may be an allusive dream. with me to talk about his people's hopes and difficulties is palestinian prime minister salam fayyad. he's in washington to attend the 2012 saban forum on u.s./israel relations. it's my understanding you were against this at first. is that true? and if so, how do you feel now? >> no. i never was against it. as a matter of fact, i was very much a part of the thinking -- >> did you think it was time now? or some time down in the future? >> given the frustrations that we palestinians have had with the political process, it has not been productive. there's no question that we needed to pursue any and all available options to us. and the international law -- with the national diplomacy. and this was one of them. the question for me all along was how best to do it. provide us with some leverage going forward because what we really want end of day is genuine state where our people can live as free people with dignity. >> at the end we were just talking in the
status, for the purposes of pursuing other organizations within the united nations such as the international criminal court, in an attempt to try to delegitimize the state of israel or marginalize it, that there's a consequence in the congress of the united states that gives a significant amount of money to the palestinian authority. the problem with what i think is a reckless movement by president abbas is that when morning rises on the west bank, nothing will have changed as a result of the nonmember status that they acquired in the general assembly today. the general assembly was very hostile to the state of israel so nothing changes on the ground and the only way that we will get what we want, which is a two state, two people solution, is through a negotiated process. >> palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas says it's not about delegitimizing israel, it's about legitimizing a palestinian state. isn't this what everyone wants at the end of this very complicated, rather dangerous rainbow? >> it's interesting, in president abbas' remarks he never recognized

government changed the information going to the ambassador of the united nations that was not classified information. she got a set of information that was false. she claims she did what was she was given and it's not her fault. i'm willing to accept her telling the truth. fine. then who did it? it's fair for the senate to say we're not going to approve a new secretary of state until we find out who in the white house or in the intelligence community fundamentally set out a dishonest, misinformation for the american people. it was repeated on five different national television shows by the ambassador of the united nations. i don't blame ambassador rice. i accept her version of what she did, but then she's kicked the ball back into the white house, and they had better tell us. i don't think the senate has any obligation to approve her until the white house has told them that. >> greta: i don't like all the discussion behind closed doors. i don't believe that everything asked of her, or anyone else in connection with this investigation, is classified. i think that's a horrible disease in t

with implications for the future. the united nations vote is viewed as a victory for palestinians and an embarrassing diplomatic defeat for the united states. there were plenty of cheers in the west bank. palestinians took their victory celebration into the streets. israel still controlled the west bank. east jerusalem and access to gaza, and voted against recognizing a palestinian state. so did the u.s. the vote count was an overwhelming 138 to 9. 41 nations abstained. secretary of state hillary clinton says the vote places further obstacles in the path to peace. real independence from palestinians remaining elusive according to the secretary of state, until a peace deal is negotiated with israel. >>> president obama and mitt romney had a private lunch at the white house today. we know what they ate but no specifics about their conversation. the get together marked their first meeting since facing off in the third presidential debate. the menu included turkey chilly and southwestern grilled chicken saeid. the former rivals posed for an official autograph in the oval office. much

about that. >> the only way forward is not meaningless theater at the united nations. the only way forward is to have meaningful peace talks, to engage for israelis and palestinians to try to solve the problems together. and that's what we're proposing. direct face to face peace talks. >> against this backdrop, the next opec meeting i believe december 12th is approaching. how do you expect the nations involved to respond? >> so far i guess with wti prices under $100, saudi arabia has achieve wlad it has publicly announced it wanted as in a price under $100. so right now i think there's very little scope for change in either production or actual quotas for the cartel. relative to developments around gaza, of course they're adding an additional layer to geopolitical tensions. but then again, if you consider the region, it is not a region that produces oil or is strategic in terms of an oil transit point. it could add to existing tensions. >> you brought up the u.s. fiscal cliff. what's the most important marginal factor at this point, is it u.s. demand, the situation in china? i real
for the united states at the united nations. certainly the u.s. is the primary backer of israel. this vote is really a message to the united states that it's support of israel isn't going to be tolerated at the united nations. it puts a lot of pressure on the united states to get these parties back to the table and hammer out a deal as the main mediator in the peace process. >> thank you. >> it is eight minutes past the hour. egypt's assembly passed a new rushed draft constitution. the 85-member mostly muslim brotherhood assembly passed 234 articles. the draft will be presented to morsi and approved by the egyptian people. the language is open to interpretation and may allow conservative islamists to impose a version of law. human rights groups say it's full of holes. the proposed constitution has an anger against the expanded presidential powers. >>> the supreme court will decide whether to tackle same-sex marriage. they will consider requests to review cases. a violation of the constitutions equal protection revisions. they only recognize marriages between a man and woman. it's also cons
different subject, united nations to upgrade palestinian status to a non-member observer state. clear slap in the face to the u.s. and israel and two of only 9 companies to vote against the new palestinian resolution. 138 countries voted in favor of giving palestinian the upgraded status and what happens now? the question, are we going to give them money for this upgraded status? let's ask john boulton, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations. he joins us on the phone. it's very simple, ambassador, are we going to be paying for palestinian? >> well, i think it's going to come in very short order, this vote won't do it, but, you know, this is part of the effort by the palestinian authority over the years to pretend that it's actually a state, and to justify more assistance, i think it will try and use u.n. channels more effectively to get money and may well join other u.n. specialized agencies now that the general assembly said it's the state. ab you know, israel and the state department have tried to play down yesterday's vote, but i'm afraid unlike a lot of u.n. votes which truly are
unsatisfactory in the answers that i do think now she faces close to the united nations republican opposition. >> you have other stories coming out about the companies that invested in. the point is, is this an issue for would? is the president going to put her forward? >> she was protected of her in the episode. but i think john kerry has been the leading candidate all along. but some people at the table think john kerry has negative bus i think he is the leading candidate. the other big ticket item here is the treasury secretary. you can see geithner leaving. and there is talk of erskine bowles or charles djo lew. >> they lost colin, the mild mannered senator in congress and the senator that introduced rice when she was nominated to be the u.n. ambassador, when you lose collins you have lost the world. i don't understand how she went around with meetings to present her best side to the mccain and graham. to collins, ayotte and came out on the -- i'm talking about susan rice. she came out on the wrong end of this. and for some reason. i think her nomination is in deep trouble. the president
the united nations endorsed an independent state of palestine. [shouting] those are the celebrations in the streets of the west bank in gaza but the euphoria may not last because that vote at the u.n. is mostly symbolic. the palestinians still divided by competing governments, different governments in gaza than the west bank. israel keeping control of the borders. david lee miller is live in jerusalem. what is the israeli reaction to this, david lee? >> reporter: bill, here's the front page of an israeli newspaper. it says simply in hebrew, the world decided on the front page is the approximately stin president mahmoud abbas. shortly after he spoke yesterday at the united nations benjamin netanyahu wasted no time to say his speech was nothing but propaganda. under the u.n. vote the palestinians will become nonvoting observer state status at the united nations with borders reverting back to what was originally in place in 1967. now this resolution essentially means that on paper at least, jerusalem is going to be divided and under this resolution, the western wall, one of the holiest
never happen. >>> good evening. here's what's happening. the united nations voted earlier to recognize palestinian statehood. though the u.s. voted no, there were cheers on the floor of the general assembly. hillary clinton sounded hopeful about dealing with iran and its nuclear program. she says there's still a window of opportunity to resolve that issue. and former george h.w. bush is being treated at a hospital for bronchitis. he may be released this weekend. now back to "hardball ". >>> back to "hardball." let's take making a deal here. for all those at home who want to see republicans and democrats work together to avoid the fiscal cliff, we can bring you two lawmakers who are open to cutting a deal before the end of the year. with me are members from both sides of the aisle, u.s. congressman lee terry, a republican from nebraska, and u.s. congressman jerry connolly, a democrat from nearby southern virginia. but first, i want to start with you. you told the "omaha world herald" this about republicans, we're screwed either way. we have no leverage in these discussions. congressman,
of a strong speech he gave at the united nations last month denouncing mass rape and impunity in congo. mr. president, the united nations has 20,000 member peacekeeping force in eastern congo to help the region's violence. the area is still very fragile. awash in weapons, warlords and competing regional interests but it's also rich in minerals that are found in our everyday electronics and cell phones. it's been said that congo war contains wars within wars and that's true, but fueling much of this violence is a bloody contest for control of these minerals. in the last congress i was proud to join in a bipartisan effort with senators brownback and others to protect the country's mineral wealth from fueling the region's horrific violence. the bill we passed asked for transparency from companies using these minerals and it has to be approved, i was happy to see in august that the securities and exchange commission approved the rule. it's a sound and fair rule. it was disappointed when the national association of manufacturers in the united states say they've already targeted this rule for a
a host of international criticism also coming from the united nations saying that morsi's power grab is illegal. >> there was certainly a lot of hope for egyptians that were looking for a change with morsi after getting rid of hosni mubarak. what options are there for any type of compromise for the protesters? again, this draft resolution needs to move on for approval, but is there time to reach any type of compromise that would appease the protesters that are opposed to it? >> reporter: it seems very difficult. egypt is very divided right now. the one camp, the one here in tahrir square, is anti-morsi, anti-muslim brotherhood. they saw also that the united states has been too quick to embrace the muslim brotherhood, and that has emboldened morsi to allow himself to become a dictator or to become a new phara pharaoh. morsi is digging in. he gave a speech last night on television. it was formatted as an interview, but it was still a speech in which he said, i'm sorry. i didn't mean to take all of these extra powers, but i did it for the sake of the nation. >> nbc's richard engel in ta
